Native Sun


No conversation about New York City rock ’n’ roll is complete without Native Sun. Fronted by Colombian-American songwriter Danny Gomez, the band makes cathartic and timeless songs that are undeniable. Along with drummer Nico Espinosa and bassist Justin Barry, their livewire local gigs are simultaneously welcoming, unpredictable, and chaotic — making them a can’t-miss fixture of city nightlife with a scrappy but sizable following. But the past couple of years, when concerts and a physical music community were paused, allowed Gomez to reassess and focus on his songwriting. He locked himself in his Brooklyn apartment he shares with Barry and focused on writing a song a day for however long he could. He emerged with material that’s startlingly honest and unflinching in its intensity.

On their latest EP “Off With Our Heads," on Grand Jury Music, they’ve crafted their rawest and most resonant collection of songs yet. Produced by Walter Schreifels (Gorilla Biscuits, Rival Schools, Quicksand) and recorded live-to-tape, the tracks burst with the kinetic energy of their live show but find Gomez singing about grief and his disillusionment with the world, while lovingly capturing the chaos, humanity, and sense of boundless possibility and potential for serendipitous moments of connection that make NYC a central inspiration for the band and the rest of the world.
